    Great episode. I really like the new piece of music that was played through the recap to the aftermath of Luffy vs. Kaido. Franky, Robin, and Usopp reaction to Luffy's situation made me laugh. Plus I like how they went intermission at the end of Act 1 for the ending of the episode.

    Can't wait for the next episode in two weeks.

    Really nice episode. They covered a full chapter for once, so no stretched out filler. Great art. Next episode preview looks awesome, and I cannot wait to get to Act 2!

    The last episode covered the first 3 chapters of 924, so not a full chapter.

    Nope, someone made a mistake and has been spreading that there's another break after 916 but 917 will still air next week

    After the last 2 shabangabang of episodes, everything following after would feel like a bit of a downgrade. But nonetheless, this was still a solid episode and a very enjoyable watch on the whole. I don't need an episode to necessarily assault my senses with masses of sakuga in order to be satisfied.

    Yutaka Nakashima's one of the episode directors whose contributions on this arc have been a bit more on the modest side compared to others, but in this episode the direction was pretty good, considerably stronger than his usual output. Especially the directionnal choices towards the end with the japanese text font during Luffy and Kid's dialogue scenes were pretty damn awesome. I'd even say that the ending portion bested the manga to some extent.

    He said that he experimented with some new directionnal methods and it payed off, especially during the ending sequence. This also shows that Nakashima has more tricks up his sleeve, despite being one of the more moderate directors on the show. Hopefully he throws in more experimental stuff like this in his episode more regularely in the future.

    Shuichi Ito's strong really did a good job depicting Luffy's anger in today's episode with his really strong and relatively refined art.

    There are 2 different studios handling the compositing of the series. The main department of photography being Asahi Productions and the secondary one being studio Twinkle. The latter was in charge of most of the compositing in this episode. I don't like how Twinkle always decides to smudge the lines, they may be aiming for a more consistent look but it mostly ends up looking like a smeary mess.

    The ending was pretty dope.

    I'll add my voice to the chorus saying that that ending was pretty cool. That's the sort of inspiration I like to see.

    If anyone's curious the mystery prisoner is voiced by Yu Mizushima, voice of Big Mom's three homies.

    This was a really nice episode. 'Slavery mines' are always a good setting (Dragon Quest 5, last year's Yu-No anime), and it's great how hardened and dangerous Luffy has become. So long as he's in this situation, he's lost every bit of his good nature. 20 years and almost 1000 episodes later and One Piece is still managing to make its main character feel fresh.
